Police seize toilet art

A toilet which flushes to the sound of Italys national anthem has been impounded by police. It was on display at the Bolzano Museum of Modern Art and was the work of two local artists.

Prosecutors say the Fratelli dItalia anthem is a national emblem which should be protected. Defence barristers for the museum argue that while the anthem has patriotic and sentimental value, it is not a national symbol.

A judgement is due later this week. Arguments will then begin over whether the case marks a precedent – or whether its just a flash in the pan.
